ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) — Adams County Sheriff’s deputies were on scene of a reported bomb threat at the Pima Medical Institute.
At 5:23 p.m., the sheriff’s office confirmed the scene was deemed safe by the SWAT and bomb unit. The perimeter and shelter-in-place were lifted and all traffic closures have reopened.
The sheriff’s office was working on an active bomb threat after a call came in at 3:57 p.m. at the institute located at 7475 Dakin St. The building was searched by the team’s K-9 and bomb squad.
All residents and surrounding businesses were asked to shelter in place. Students from the institute were relocated to Smokin’ Dave’s BBQ, a nearby business. Students could then be picked up at the 7-Eleven or Big O Tires off of Pecos between El Paso Boulevard and Del Norte Street.
The sheriff’s office had the bomb unit on site. The road was closed at Del Norte Street and Dakin Street but has since been reopened.
This is the second bomb threat on Wednesday after the state Capitol was evacuated. A bomb squad swept the building and it has since been cleared for reentry.
